I'm a big fan of Peter Bogdanovich, who himself was a big fan of Orson Welles...and well, Welles was big!..and Orson Welles was a mentor to Bogdanovich and gave him a few tips during shooting of Paper Moon.

Biggest reason the film works so well is absolutely brilliant performances by Ryan and Tatum O'Neal as Moses and Addie.

Based on a novel called "Addie Prey" by Joe David Brown, this story, set during the Great Depression in the Kansas bible belt, introduces us to a slick con man named Moses Prey, played by Ryan O'Neal, who arrives at the funeral of a woman he had a past with named Essie Mae Loggins and finds no one there but a minister, two old women, and Essie Mae's daughter, Addie (Tatum O'Neal).
